only going to get worse before it gets better. take a look at this, this is 880 through fremont, where you is hardly make out the commuters in the distance. from time to time, you see people driving much slower than the speed limit as we urge you to do this morning, because you just can't see for more than 200 feet in many spots across the bay area. this is 101 at 280 through the south bay and san jose, where we already have multiple crashes this morning, we have upindicates to both of those incidents. northbound 87 at skyport, there was an accident earlier. looks like the crash cleared but as a result we don't know for sure but the traffic signal is out at bottom of the ramp, that's a dangerous situation. remember, treat that as a four-way stop and be courteous to the other drivers on the road with these conditions. northbound 280 at 87, another incident blocking the right-hand lane. tow truck is on the scene, hopefully cleared soon. we have a lag effect around that traffic, already slowing around one incident. we'll keep you updated all morning long.

putting cameras in cockpits and the faa said no. the ntsb handles all kinds of things beyond airplanes, including trains, as we found out with the pg&e disaster they handle pipelines as well. landon dowdy, good morning. >> good morning to you. futures are higher as the markets look to snap the recent slid. the energy sector leading the line it monday as oil prices dropped to their lowest levels since 2009 and down again today trading below $45 a barrel. there's no major economic data today but investors may focus on some earnings news as aluminum giant alcoa reported positive results last night. the dow falling 96 points to 17,640. back over to you. >> thank you much. president obama has called more protection against hacks and more privacy for the nation's school students.
the president made that call during his speech at the federal trade comission calling for a 0-day deadline for stores to warn you those data has been hacked, laws that california already has. >> if we're going to be connected then with he need to be protected. as americans we shouldn't have to forfeit our basic privacy when we go online to do our business. >> the president also calls for laws that would prevent educational companies that supply computers and programs to schools from marketing to your children. again, a law that california, guys, already has, in fact the president mentioned the california law. that one may not make its way through congress, but a couple of companies have gotten together, they have a coalition to agree to those rules anyway, but the president would like to have an actual physical law. >> got to appreciate that report. you're the tech expert of course. computers may understand human behavior better than you think. >> a new study finds a computer
can accurately judge personality traits by facebook likes. people who like dr. who and wikipedia are more shy and reserved. er have cess those who like chanel are competitive. >> they needed ten facebook likes to judge the personality better than a co-worker would. thousands signed up to be part of the my personality project on facebook, so some interesting stuff to glean from that. what would they find if they looked at our facebook page and checked out the likes. real love of taylor swift, there's nothing wrong with that. >> i'm going to shake it off, i'm going to shake it off this time for you. she's a likeable young lady, done a lot of good things. >> talented. >> and i think we can all agree quite beautiful. >> she's lovely looking, yes. >> oh. i enjoyed hearing those words from your mouth. good morning to you, sam.
if that didn't wake you up, i have a good news/bad news scenario in the weather department. start with the good news, we are not sparing the air for today. we're in the good to moderate range, coming off where we spared the air for 1 days. the fog could slow you down so give yourself ample time to reach your destination safely. we really want to you be safe out there this morning and the fog is dangerous in some spots across the bay area. 63 degrees later on today in san francisco, 65 on the east shore and 64 degrees in the south bay. what you'll notice is most of our temperatures will end up in the mid-60s with the exclusion of the north bay. you're going to hit 70 degrees today. what a beautiful day, also a lot cleaner when it comes to the pollution levels so enjoy it. get outdoors if you can. we might be sparing the air again towards the end of the week. here is the deal as we head throughout the next couple days, we'll stay nice and dry, really comfortable out there and the rain moves in late saturday into
sunday, monday into tuesday, a little bit more rain on the way. we're not expecting anything heavy. maybe three-quarters of an inch out of the two systems combined up in the north bay. nonetheless we need every single drop we can take and as we head through the second half of the month it looks like we're going to have rain chances every single week so let's switch gears now. mike has the day off. i miss him already. you probably do, too, but let's start with your drive and i can tell you the only incidents we have are in the south bay, so that's okay, but the fog is drifting around just about all of your inland valley spots. give yourself extra time trivalley on the east shore, give yourself extra time through oakland. northbound 87 at skyport we told but this crash and we told you the traffic light is out at the bottom of the ramp. now we have a new report, live wires in the area, so you probably want to avoid this area all together if you can. if you have to take the exit, make sure, i mean make sure you travel cautiously, remember to treat that situation as a four-way stop.
northbound 280 at 87 the crash is clearing. get the tow truck on the scene, and as of right now these are the only two incidents we're following but with the fog so thick i do believe we'll likely see more crashes this morning, peop if people don't take it oozy. residents of a mobile home park in palo alto will have their day in court. the city council decided to allow an appeal over the closure of the buena vista mobile home park. if the park closes, some 400 residents, mostly low income families, will be given compensation to help with relocation costs but they say they don't want to leave. "the mercury news" reporting that appeal will be heard sometime in april. >> it is 5:0. >> coming up a death row inmate takes his case to court arguing
he believes they will botch the execution. the celebration of the buckeyes win over the oregon ducks gets out of control. we'll have a look coming up. just a little while ago we could see so much cloud cover in the san bruno shot. it illustrates how the fog is out there, it moved around so be very careful. it's pretty dense on the roadways out there. be careful as you head out the door.
coming up on 5:24 on your monday -- excuse me, on your tuesday morning. you do get credit for that first day of the week. this is the san mateo bridge. it is hard to see much of anything right now as you can tell because that fog is really thick this morning, christina keeping a close eye on that. two alberrer can key police
officers are being charged with murder in the shooting death of a homeless man last month. officers accused the homeless man of illegal camping and ordered him to surrender. he was armed with knives and a history of violent encounters with police. lawyer for one of the officers says there is not one shred of evidence that supports the case and the officer had no criminal intent when he encountered that man. a murderer on death row in oklahoma is appealing his case to the supreme court after a botched lethal injection in the state last year. charles warner and several other death row inmates argue the state is using cruel and unusual punishment because the sedative used during lethal injections may not always work. in april of last year an inmate regained consciousness during his execution. investigators determined it was the result of an improperly placed iv. federal appeals court rejected warner's appeal. it is not the kind of celebration you'd like to see police in riot gear using tear
gas to break up crowds following ohio state's national title win over the oregon ducks last night. revelers set several small fires in the streets of columbus, following the buckeyes win. that game was played in dallas but thousands watched from bars in columbus and then spilled into the streets afterwards to celebrate. columbus play say about 8,000 students forced their way into ohio state's football stadium tearing down a goal post. police arrested a number of people. the buckeyes beat the ducks in the actual game, they clobbered them 42-20. a follow-up on the massive fire in los angeles that gutted an apartment building last month. the damage estimates from the fire could triple. the fire destroyed about half of the apartment complex, its 520 units, causing about $30 million in damage. that figure doesn't include the six-story building next door that was significantly damaged as well. investigators believe someone set the december 8th fire on purpose, though no arrests have
been made. a warning this morning for those with a peanut allergy. if you purchased black bean burgers made by morning star, throw it away or return it to the store. two vegetarian frozen pattis are being recalled because they may contain peanuts which were not listed on the product's box. those products are spicy and chipotle black bean burgers with expiration dates of june 30th 2016. so far no illnesses have been reported. >> it's 5:26. coming up the race to replace a legendary u.s. senator is taking shape. the early spin on the rising star, throwing her hat into the ring for 2016. and dozens marching in san francisco to remember four men shot and killed as they sat in a car. the search for the gunmen. the latest coming up next. you may have to search a little bit to find your way through the fog this morning. you see it hovering over places of the bay bridge as we watch the morning commute. christina pulling double duty today, weather and traffic all in one. won't want to miss it. it's 5:46.
it's used to treat the common cold but three south bay students had to be taken to the hospital after school officials say they took too much cough medicine on purpose. plus a show of defiance and perhaps a moment of triumph from the surviving staff members of "charlie hebdo." and we don't have to spare the air today which is good news. we're on your way to a new all-time record. better air quality today and tomorrow but that fog is thick. we're going to show you where it's getting worse before it will get better. good news is sunny and mild through friday and rain on the way. full details on your forecast in just moments. >> with all that knowing around you may not be able to spare a kif commute this morning.

forgiven" written in french above it. a well who claims to be the partner of the magazine's editor will not attend the funeral. she wishes she had within the one who died in the attack last week. she released photos of charbonnier with her daughter who she says called her dad. coming up, how the obama administration is reacting to the attacks. back in the bay, 5:31 and a south bay middle school is warning maris about a dangerous new trend among teenagers. >> it's called triple c and sent three eighth graders to the hospital. good morning, nannette. >> good morning, laura. the new craze is one more thing parents have to worry about, so keep an eye on your cold meds. britton middle school in morgan
hill recently sent home notes telling families about three eighth grade students had to be hospitalized after each took up to a dozen so-called one-a-day tablets for cough, cold and congestion. on the street that's called a triple c. too much of that causes intoxication and hallucinations. kids take triple c to get high thinking the pills are safe but can cause organ damage in large quantities. school principal glen webb says the three hospitalized dwirlz were noticeably affected. kids are finding out about triple c through social media. the problem is so concerning the feds might put certain cold meds back on its controlled list. the girls are cooperating with school officials in this investigation, but may face disciplinary action, but the good news out of all this is that the girls are going to be okay. >> hopefully they'll learn the lesson as well.

climb. >> when you're talking about particularly women and people of color who have yet to really achieve parity with white males -- >> reporter: now for harris or any other person who wants to run for this u.s. senate seat, it's pretty expensive. we're talking an estimated $50 million, that's how much a serious candidate will need to make this run for boxer's seat, according to gersten. it will reduce the number of serious candidates to three to four for each political party and collectively the candidates are expected to raise and spend close to $1 billion for this race. so harris expected to announce her candidacy sometime on social media today. in terms of who she may face, we'll talk to some of the people coming up in our next report in about half an hour. live in san francisco, stephanie
chuang, "today in the bay." >> price tags of elections keep going up and up. what about gavin newsom? news of harris' potential run comes on the heels of a statement by the lieutenant governor of california saying he would not run for barbara boxer's senate seat. he says he has "unfished work" in california. many believe he is planning to run for governor in 2018 when jerry brown's term's out. we're learning more about four young men shot and killed in san francisco last friday. 19-year-old yalani chinamurindi was working as a model. 20-year-old david saucier, 21-year-old harith atchan and 22-year-old manuel o'neal were also killed. police are calling it a gang shooting but people who know them say they were on a better road. >> the one who just jumped in the car, he was on his break from benihana's. >> my brother is 19.
